I found this word upon reading an article on the Telegraph. Long word was my first impression. I had a hard initial effort to pronounce this word and was surprised I have not seen it before. It’s a very interesting word – according to freedictionary.com – to describe someone who is astute.

A word which is used mainly to describe perhaps a gut feel, backed by intangible evidence. 

Compared to astute, which has been seen frequently, how many of you know this word?
